RDA Has Arrived: Essentials for RDA for Public Services
Presented by Susan Wynne
2:00pm to 3:00pm Eastern Time, June 19th, 2013
Registration for the live event is full. Register here if you would like to be notified when the recording is available.
After years of buzz, the Library of Congress implemented the new cataloging standard RDA (Resource Description and Access) on March 31, 2013. What is RDA and why should I care? RDA is part of the ongoing transformation of library data with an objective of responsiveness to user needs. Susan Wynne will discuss the major differences between AACR2 practices and RDA, focusing on how RDA affects user displays and navigation in local catalogs, WorldCat, and elsewhere.
Susan Wynne has been the Cataloging & Metadata Librarian at Georgia State University since February 2012. She previously held positions at the University of Wyoming and Columbus State University. Susan has published and/or presented on oral histories, RDA, and the effects of next-generation catalogs on cataloging functions and catalogers.

About the Carterette Series Webinars
The Carterette Series Webinars was named to honor one of our founding members, Pat Carterette.
In June of 2010, members of the Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Public Library Service launched this bi-monthly educational webinar series. The series highlights trends, innovation, and best practices in libraries. The free sessions are open to interested parties from all geographic (and astral) locations. Topics are chosen to be of interest to students and employees from all library types, and each session is approved for one Georgia Continuing Education (CE) contact hour.
